Alabama leads All-SEC team with seven on first team

HOOVER, Ala. -- Alabama placed seven players on the first team of the media's All-SEC preseason picks, including four on offense, the most in the league. Wide receiver Amari Cooper, running back T.J. Yeldon, guard Anthony Steen and tackle Cyrus Kouandjio were chosen on offense, while cornerback Deion Belue, safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and linebacker C.J. Mosley were first-teamers on defense.

Mosley led the balloting with 231 votes.

The media's predicted order of finish would produce a repeat of last season: Alabama winning the SEC West, Georgia winning the East, and Alabama winning the SEC Championship Game.
